Abbasi’s responsibilities are to build its current tech team with an additional 14 engineers to develop new ideas and enhance Gumtree’s e-commerce. He will focus on recruitment and retention to make sure the business has a wide set of tech skills to drive it forward and will apply his experience at businesses including PhotoBox, Marks & Spencer and ING.
